Impact of intravenous heparin on quantification of circulating microRNAs in patients with coronary artery disease.

Abstract:

MicroRNAs are small non-coding RNAs that are detectable in plasma and serum. Circulating levels of microRNAs have been measured in various studies related to cardiovascular disease. Heparin is a potential confounder of microRNA measurements due to its known interference with polymerase chain reactions.
